We welcome corporations to support our programs through financial or other means. The financial support of many companies have made possible the ongoing programs of our chapters. Corporation donations are accepted at any time during the year and sponsorships are renewed annually.
All corporate donations should be sent directly to NCC-AWIS. Corporate funds raised are distributed by mutual consent among the chapters as requested for local projects such as outreach, mentoring, and for awarding local scholarships. Corporate funds are not used for operating expenses for the chapters.
In addition to supporting local chapter activities, NCC-AWIS raises funding to support regional AWIS events. Two awards are presented annually at the NCC-AWIS awards dinner to local women scientists, one at the senior level and one at the junior level, who have contributed to the success of women in the sciences. A third award was created in 2000 to honor women working away from the bench. Other regional events include workshops and conferences which are open to the public throughout the Bay Area.
AWIS is a 501 (c) (3) organization and NCC-AWIS operates on a July 1-June 30 fiscal year.
